Program Notes

The title of the work, Beneath a Canvas of Green, is in reference to the many walks I used to take during the summers while growing up in northern Minnesota. I love the way the sunlight shines through the leaves -- especially when there is a bit of wind to make the light dance and flicker. I am also fascinated by the way in which the many things I pass by in life on a regular basis can appear so different, depending on the time of day, season of the year, or mood I am in at the time. These thoughts were at the forefront as I composed Beneath a Canvas of Green. From the rush of sounds that open and close the piece to its calm and delicate interior, the work utilizes a singular melodic idea viewed through a variety of different lenses.
